Transponder Usage for the Selmon Expressway

The Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) accepts multiple toll payment options. In addition to SunPass, THEA accepts numerous transponders from different states, including E-ZPass, Peach Pass and Quick Pass. Selmon Expressway customers also have a toll-by-plate option. Transponder customers save 36 cents on every Selmon Expressway toll and avoid the $2.50 administrative fee that is added to toll-by-plate monthly invoices. It is important that our transponder customers have only ONE transponder in their vehicle at a time. If you have more than one transponder in the vehicle, you might get double billed.

A transponder is the device that our systems use to know when you pass through our toll gantries. We detect your unique number and automatically process the toll charge to the transponder account. If there are two transponders in vehicle, you could be charged the toll on each account.

Take the time to check out your transponder situation and you will avoid hassles! As a tolling agency, we understand the value of your time and want to make sure our customers love their drive.
